BTS to release new ‘Essential Edition’ of album ‘BE’ next month

K-pop dynamo BTS is set to drop a new edition of its hit album “BE” next month, the band’s agency said Monday.


The new edition titled the “Essential Edition,” will drop on Feb. 19, according to Big Hit Entertainment. BTS initially released the “Deluxe Version” of “BE” in November.

The agency explained the new edition is a way for BTS to thank their fans for the historic milestones the group has achieved, such as topping the Billboard Hot 100 and getting nominated for the upcoming Grammy Awards.

The new edition will carry the eight tracks on the original edition ― such as “Life Goes On,” “Blue Grey,” “Stay” and the pre-released hit “Dynamite.”

But some features of the album will be different from the original version, the agency said, without elaborating on the details. It added that BTS will be sequentially unveiling the “special gifts” for fans ahead of the album release.

“BE,” which carries tracks that reflect the band’s thoughts on the ongoing pandemic, is an album in which the members played active behind-the-scene roles during production.
